Given the track record of writer-director Luc Besson ("The Fifth Element"), I was hoping this story of a woman (Scarlett Johansson) tapped into an ever-growing brain capacity would be a bold and inspired piece. What I got was a piece of something else altogether. As Lucy's enhanced powers turn ludicrous, the plot becomes unintentionally hilarious.
Rating: One-half star.

"Planes: Fire & Rescue"
Animation, PG, 84 minutes
There's a cheerful simplicity about the animated "Planes: Fire & Rescue." Contrast it with the chaotic, clanging "Transformers" movie, made for a slightly older preteen audience. The high-flying new Disney cartoon has a clearer story, more engaging characters, more lucid action scenes and jokes that actually raise a smile. The production was overseen by Pixar's head honcho John Lasseter, and it feels like a junior varsity spinoff of "Cars." The characters are anthropomorphic aircraft and automobiles. They have soulful eyes in their windshields and expressive mouths on their lower fuselages. Their designs have a nice balance between whimsy, visual appeal and technical accuracy. Rating: Three stars

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"
Sci-fi action, PG-13, 130 minutes
Perhaps the most engrossing edition yet in 40-plus years of "Apes" films dares to ask us to take this material seriously— and then gives us ample reason to do just that. The battles between the apes who dominate the Earth and the human survivors are terrific, but we also get some genuinely moving quieter moments.
Rating: Three and a half stars

"The Purge: Anarchy"
Horror, R, 100 minutes
The clever conceit behind James DeMonaco's 2013 sleeper hit "The Purge" was not that American society had resolved its crime/inequality/population problems with an annual free-pass-for-murder "purge." It was that this hell night came home to roost on isolated, gated suburbanites, ostensibly liberal people above this annual bloodletting, immune to its impact, but benefiting and even profiting from the mayhem — until it invades their community and their homes. "The Purge: Anarchy" abandons that sly and disturbing message for a straightforward quest — people trapped outside when the annual "release the beast" commences, people who fall in with a bloody-minded man, bent on vengeance. It's preachier, more diverse in its casting. All of which make it more specific and limit it.
Rating: One star

"Sex Tape"
Comedy, R, 90 minutes
Nearly every scene in this Cameron Diaz-Jason Segel farce had me thinking: How could they film this without somebody raising a hand and saying, "You know, there's a problem here"? Even in a raunchy, slapstick, allegedly sexy comedy, it's hard to root for a couple when they behave like two of the dopiest people on the planet. It's remarkable how awful this movie turned out.
